The German tuning specialist has presented its latest project. Called (very unpretentiously, I must admit) TECHART SUV, the new vehicle is built around the 2008 Porsche Cayenne performance sport utility vehicle. Like it is often the case with personalization programs created for German vehicles, this one clearly fails to blend seamlessly into the rather boring mix of curves and planes that form one of the most potent SUVs currently available on the market.

Still, even if you don’t like the body kit, there are still whole two more stages of tuning that will convert your FWD monster into an even more attractive sports car.

The TECHART SUV program consists of three major parts: interior and exterior personalization and engine tuning.

The TECHART Aerodynamic Kit I adds the base model new front spoiler, sill panels and rear diffuser, all made of high-quality PUR-RIM plastic. There is also a pair of new exhaust tips, too.

The vehicle’s available power may also be increased up to 620 hp, if it is based on the 2008 Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

To further highlight Cayenne’s sporty character, as well as to provide even better handling, the kit may be complimented with the TECHART Sport Module, which is lowering the SUV by 30mm (some 1.18 inches), and a choice of TECHART Formula I and Formula II alloy wheels and ContiCrossContact UHP performance tires in the size 295/30 ZRs 22.

Inside, the car may be fitted with luxury leather upholstery by the Swiss manufactory de Sede.

TECHART says nothing about this option’s price but, believe me, the leather job looks just perfect.
